Finally Electroforming at Home

Whoever said that nothing worth doing is easy could well have been talking about electroforming. Although I've seen instructional videos and read explanatory blog posts claiming that copper plating at home is quick and straightforward, I suspected it wouldn't be that simple for me. I was right. 

The good news is, I stuck with it, using recycled copper as planned, and the first batch out of my home plating bath is shown below, also live in the shop. One fun little geode, one citrine, and two amethyst points. Enjoy! I know I did ... eventually, ha ha. More to come soon, I promise.
